Question about Gateway FPD2185W 21 in. LCD Television

1 Answer

Stopped working I can see the screen is on a little bit.... but nothing. The power light is lit when you first plug it in, then the power light just flickers a little bit. If I can fix it, it would be better than scrapping it. I have it in pieces right now. Help?

Fault with the main power supply regulator board. Check and replace damaged component/s at its main power regulator [SMPS] section circuit. Contact any service technician. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts.
It will be best to replace the power supply regulator board as card basis rather than making "Surgery" to it; which usually will make loss for both money and time.

Unless this JUST started happening AND the TV worked previously, or you recently added a device to your set up, I am guessing that you simply are on the wrong input. For instance, I have a playstation connected to Video 2 and if my TV is set to Video 2 input AND my playstation is NOT on, the screen will be lit, but no picture. Make sure you are on the correct input.

RCA Model: RLC3257B just stopped working

I had the same exact problem. The tv had not worked in months. I tested the capacitors by slightly charging them with an ohmmeter and they all tested fine. When I plugged the tv back in, it began working perfectly. It turns out it had been plugged into an outlet that was poorly grounded. I am not sure why the charging of the capacitors rectified the problem but its a cheap fix
